PREFACE TO 1916-17 EDITION. 

WE have again diligently and carefully collected and 
arranged useful information regarding Buteshire 
as it is to-day — with its officials, householders and business 
people — and once again have pleasure in giving the com- 
pilation the honours of the Press. 

Notwithstanding the strain, economies, and consider- 
able increases in the prices of material and labour, conse- 
quent upon the continuance of the Greatest of all Wars, 
we have made sacrifices to produce oar Directory as com- 
plete as formerly — and that without any advance in price 
to former patrons. Complimentary copies restricted. 

As our Advertising friends appreciate the [continued 
distribution of their announcements facing the ordinary 
reading matter, with prompt receipt of orders, we hope, 
to be enabled to keep permanent this decided benefit. 

Our desire is to overlook no interest ; and therefore, 
we respectfully solicit notices of alterations or additions 
as early as possible, so that these may be given effect to. 

This Directory is a much more important publication 
than many imagine. One of the earliest publications con- 
nected with Buteshire was a Directory, issued about one 
hundred years ago in conjunction with Renfrewshire. The 
printing of portions of it about forty years ago in one of 
the local papers made such interesting reading, that the 
idea of having such a present-day record for Rothesay took 
the popular fancy and led up to our present compilation 
for the whole of Buteshire. 

This Directory is not only at hand for reference at all 
times throughout the whole county, but it is also ready for 
reference in the libraries of Glasgow, Edinburgh, London, 
Dublin, Cambridge, Oxford, ifec, and in numerous business 
houses and agencies in busy centres throughout the king- 
dom; so we are particularly anxious that nothing of benefit 
to Buteshire be omitted, but that all interests have a good 
show, and everything be brought thoroughly up to date. 

Our best thanks are again accorded to those who have 
in any way helped us in this compilation. It takes long 
and careful vigilance to ascertain and give effect to the 
continual changes. Notwithstanding the distractions of 
the world war, we have been enabled to present " business 
as usual " here. It is scarcely that, of course, but our 
glorious British Empire, as well as our little county, is 
intact; and will, by strenuous endeavour, survive the blast, 
recuperate, and flourish again — brighter and better than 

ever - HIGGIE & CO., Publishers.

Parish of Nopth Bute. 

r l ''HIS is the northern portion of the island of Bute. Port-Bannatyne, its principal 
-* village, is two and a-half miles from Rothesay, with which it is connected by tram- 
way. Kames Castle, in the vicinity, is said to be the oldest inhabited castle in the 
country, and was the ancient seat of the Banhatynes. The village was named after 
that family — two brothers of whom (John and Gilbert) — received a charter from King 
Robert the Bruce, for services rendered at Bannockburn. 

At the last census, the parish contained 449 males and 518 females, total, 1718- 
— being a decrease of 88 since 1901, which was an increase of 150 over 1891.

Boards, see County Lists).

The Isle of Arran. 

1^ HIS island, the largest in the group, is famous for the grandeur of its scenery and 
the variety of its geological deposits. The island is twenty miles in length, 
twelve in breadth, and is divided into two parishes — Kilbride on the east, and Kilmory 
on the west. The late King Edward and Queen Alexandra spent a very pleasant 
holiday in the island after their Coronation in August, 1902, and witnessed interesting 
sheep dog trials

The Bute County Directory 

is the only Publication of the kind printed and 
published in Buteshire. Its data is carefully 
compiled, and much time and attention is devoted 
each year to the careful investigation and noting 
of the necessary alterations in the personnel of the 
occupants of public offices, the correct addresses 
of the general inhabitants, and the latest changes 
amongst those engaged in trade. 

The earliest publications connected with Rothe- 
say were Directories, and they are interesting 
reading even at this time of day. 

Our publication not only includes Rothesay, but 
embraces the whole County of Bute, and though it 
has increased in usefulness and circulation, its

Compared with National Languages Esperanto is like a well- 
kept garden, the produce of which is taken from the jungle and 
scientifically treated. 

The 11th Annual International Congress was to have been held in Edinburgh last 
year, but the Great War, which prevented the holding of the 10th at Paris the previous 
year, was the means of causing the transfer of the 11th to Sao Francisco. To com- 
memorate the opening of the Panama Canal a big Exhibition was held there, and a 
Tuta Pacifika Esperanto Kongreso developed into the 11th Tuta Mondo Esperanto 
Kongreso. 

The language of peace and universal brotherhood is spreading, and the wide- 
awake and subtle Germans were prompt to circulate, by its means, their version of the- 
cause of this terrible war. Thev posed as an innocent peace-loving people, who had 
a cruel war thrust upon them, and the child-like and bland Teutons were forced to 
defend their homes from ruthless destruction (!) Esperanto is not known by every- 
body, but it is much easier to learn and comprehend than any national language, and 
there is not a single civilized country in the world without an Esperanto group or 
individual members, and to these the G-erman version went, and was translated into- 
the languages of the different countries. These communications (circulated through 
the neutral language) wre taken to be unbiased, whereas the communications in Eng- 
lish, French, Flemish, Russian or Italian, etc., were believed to be prejudiced. Truth 
and righteousness have much to overcome, but tbey will prevail. Germany is .still 
scheming for the good opinion of neutrals, while using red-croes ambulances for their 
machine guns, and sinking without warning < by their subinaries) any unarmed vessel 
they meet and rejoice at the drowning of thousands of innocent victims, and (by their 
airships) bombard defenceless towns and glory in their own beloved " frightfulness." 
" Peace on earth and good will to men is comin' yet for a' that," but it is not coming, 
through, but in spite of, German might and diplomacy.

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



In Part III of our Directory, we do not aim at 
printing such complete lists of Householders as will 
be found in the official Voters' Roll, published two 
or three months hence. While, however, we miss 
several names of the hundreds of persons whose 
houses are closed during the Winter months, we 
print those new ones which will not appear in 
the Voters' Roll until they have tenanted their 
houses for more than a year.

THE 

BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 



OPINIONS OF THE PRESS. 

" It is splendidly compiled." — Campbeltown Courier. 

" Being invaluable, it should have a large circulation." — Argyllshire Advertiser. 

" Contains a large amount of information carefully revised to date." — Glasgow 
Herald. 

The Directory is indispensible to business people in the county." — Rothesay Ex- 
press. 

" Useful local annual. A useful book of this kind is a convenience that no busy 
trader can afford to be without. ' — Buteman. 

" Every little parish has its own pages in the book. It contains much general in- 
formation relating to the County of Bute. It is well worth the price — one shilling." 
— Ardrossan Herald. 

Messrs Higgie and Co, are to be highly complimented on the production of a 
volume which, for reference, should prove invaluable to all classes of the community. 
— Greenock Telegraph. 

" Will be found invaluable to those having any connection with Rothesay ; and as 
for the many visitors who are attracted to the island, they could scarcely get on with- 
out it."— Cieeaock Herald. 

" If the importance of a place is to be judged from the local directory, as claimed,, 
"then the County of Bute in general, and Rothesay in particular, must be said to occupy 
a high plane." — -Evening Times. 

" The Directory should be indispensible to residents in the County of Bute, and all 
who have official or business relations with it. It is really a valuable volume for the 
nhabitants of the County of Bute." — Largs and Millport Weekly News. 

" Indeed in this book is to be found all the information which the most inquiring 
person requires to know about the county. The matter is well arranged. Such a book 
is a necessary part of the equipment of every office which does business with islands 
whose interests are so closely associated with those of Glasgow." — Evening Times. 

O 

Besides the opinions of the Press we have received spontaneous testimony of the 
usefulness of the Directory — from professional and business gentlemen and pleasure- 
seekers, not only in the county but beyond it. 

A Rothesay public official wrote : — " The Bute County Directory has many times 
proved most valuable when visitors have come to me inquiring for the addresses of 
their Rothesay friends. In fact, we could hardly do without it." 

An Arran postmaster wrote : — " I am much obliged for your courtesy in sending 
me the Bute County Directory, but do not think it reasonable that I should have all 
the benefit of the information you have compiled with so much care and expense entirely 
free of expense, so I take the liberty of enclosing postal order for Is 4d for cost and 
postage.

THE BUTE COUNTY DIRECTORY. 

This Directory now-a-days contains the information dis- 
tinctive of both the Directory and the Almakac of past 
years, and the date of its issue is gradually becoming mid- 
way between the original dates of issue of these two 
publications We begin our researches early enough, but 
the airy Summer publications must hustle out while the 
sun shines. The Directory, although very useful to the 
fluctuating visiting population, is not necessarily a fine- 
weather publication, but a hardy permanent resident. 

Our aim, in this publication, is not to record the passing names 
and achievements of visitors and those who come to cater 
for them, but something of far greater importance — the 
registering of the names, standing, and businesses of the 
resident population — for the information of all having an 
interest in Buteshire, its burghs and rural districts. 

The Directory is, of course, not only for the remaining por- 
tion of the year in which it is issued, but continues the 
only printed reference book for the county of Bute until 
its successor appears. 

One edition of the Directory is no sooner off than we begin to 
note alterations (and prepare for probable additions) for 
the next — so that it may be thoroughly up to date. These 
alterations and probable additions lie at our office, and are 
at the service of our customers. 

Will Secretaries of societies, etc., connected with Buteshire, 
who do not already do so, please remember to forward 
to us particulars of their institutions, annual reports, 
and lists of office-bearers, as information for the next 
issue of the Directory 1 

We are not yet enabled to publish all the information that we 
desire, but that does not prevent us compiling (in antici- 
pation of greater reciprocity) more than we at present 
print. 

This Directory is not only found all over Buteshire, but in the 
libraries and other piaces of public resort in "the adjacent 
islands of Great Britain and Ireland."

Postcript . 

Owing to the necessities of 
the Great War our Hardy Annual 
is, this year, s one what ^Later 
in being issued. The type was 
all set and corrected at the 
usual time, but the subsequent 
calling up of. men -by the Mili- 
tary Authorities, and spread- 
ing out of the Summer Holidays, 
have caused the printing and 
binding of the sheets to be 
delayed . 

It is a matter of great 
thankf alnes s that our Empire 
is making progress with the 
Great 77orld War, and that our 
inconveniences are compara- 
tively so few and slight.

SPE LLING RE FORM. 

(Common Spelling.) 

WHEN the " Peace on Earth and Good Will to Men " emerges from 
this great World War, one of the most insistent reforms will be the improved 
orthography of the languages. English especially. The spelling of our words will have 
to be scientifically treated. It takes years to get a working acquaintance with the 
common spelling of the words we use ; and when the elusive contortions are mastered, 
they remain a troublesome burden on the memory for ever. 

The wily Germans are already trying to take advantage of us again : they are re- 
forming their spelling. At the present time Britain and Russia are anticipating rosy 
business relations after the Great War. The following significant extract is from a 
business man in Russia : — 

(Reformd Speling) 

If simplifyed speling kaim intu being, English wood spred lyk wyld-fyr heer. Rus- 
sians ar eeger to lern it, but everiwhair eu heer; " Eur English gramar iz very eezi, 
but the werds ar unpronounsabel, ekgept with grait praktis." For thiz reezon Ger- 
man haz been larjli euzd in the komershal relaishonz with English biznes houzez, and 
it wil be a krying skandal if German haz stil tu be euzd aafter the Wor, oeing to our 
ridikeulus speling.

(Kriti sis m z). . 

" From Mr George Higgie, Rothesay, we hav receevd an interesting litel booklet, 
printed in komemoration ov the Pitman Seutenary, in three stylz of speling — ordiuari, 
simplifyd, and fonetic longhand (Pitman's shorthand speling). Mr Higgie's vizlmnari 
gaiz taiks him ferther than the ordinary speling reformer; still, we are glad to hav the 
support of hiz vigorous pen in the fertherns of a komon principel." — The Py meer 

" How Sir Isaac Pitman wood have rejoist at your persistent eforts on behoof ov 
Fonetik Reform. Yeur determined and praktikal interest in furtheran^ ov a rashonal 
sistein ov speling dezervz the supoert ov fonograferz, speling refonnerz and edaika-

In the interests of elucaishon, the ekonomi of tiem, labor and muni, suintliing must

man's sentenari. I dair sai yu wil be aibl to apeel to meui Skot* peepl liy such a fien 
tribeuttu thair beluved kuntri."— Christina Just, M.A. 

"The attempt to revive interest in the phouotypic reform at the present time 
shows a courage "which is worthy of the most cordial support." — Pitman's Journal. 

" PI 101 etic Typography. . . This certainly shows enterprise and courage, and we 
hope — though doubting much— that it will meet with some encouragement. — British 
and Colonial Printer and Stationer."
